Pia Lindy & workgroup: OH LIGHTNESS 3in1
Is it possible to talk lightly or in bright light about life and serious matters and with that bring up multiple meanings and ways to read loss and gain? By taking the performance to different sites and places we are also asking how much do different contexts and environments influence the receiving and reading of the performance. Oh Lightness 3in1 has been influenced by encounters and experiences from the Pia Lindy´s and team ´s longer project called About to Dance – CONNECTING, and by the themes of lightness, (black) humour and loss/gain.
